Dementia – Woodside Place

We set the standard for person-centered, fulfilling Dementia Care.

Experience the Woodside Place dementia care difference at Manchester Commons.

Woodside Place at Manchester Commons follows the dementia care model we pioneered in 1991 at Woodside Place in Pittsburgh. Today, countless communities around the world are replicating this scientifically proven model of residential dementia care.

If your loved one requires both dementia care and skilled nursing, we’ve integrated these two specialties in our Skilled Nursing neighborhood at Manchester Commons—the only memory support community in Erie offering a full continuum of care, with dementia care at both the Personal Care and Skilled Nursing levels.

The beauty and comfort of the accommodations at Woodside Place of Erie are equaled only by the quality of the care our residents receive. Our person-centered model gives your loved one considerable freedom of choice in their daily schedules, lets them enjoy a variety of activities and exercise programs, and provides countless opportunities for social interaction.

Every team member in our organization—from nursing and therapy to housekeeping and maintenance—receives dementia-specific training and is certified through CARES®. Woodside Place direct care team members receive additional specialized training, and benefit from the expertise of certified dementia care practitioners throughout Presbyterian SeniorCare Network.
